Gimp can and do this and I use it all the time. Just select the folder
and click "Add". It adds a bookmark to the left window pane.

Konqueror is awsome and it is better at certain tasks than Nautilus.
However I do like Nautilus' built in CD Creator and the View as Catalog

I have had a few issues compiling programs from both platforms but
nothing I thought abnormally difficult.
